Thanks for finding me—Dr. John Talmadge—among over one billion websites. I practice psychiatry and addiction medicine in Dallas, Texas. I am Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, and I am Senior Medical Advisor for The Center for BrainHealth and The Brain Performance Institute at The University of Texas at Dallas. I have a private office at Old Parkland, the site of the first hospital built in Dallas over 120 years ago. Today Old Parkland is a beautifully restored campus, a vibrant center of business and intellectual life.

In my private clinical practice I see individuals, couples, and families. I also consult with business executives, attorneys, and other professionals in a variety of ways.

As a skilled specialist in psychiatry and addiction medicine, I help people across the domains of mental health, psychological problems, behavioral issues, and treatment. I am also experienced and qualified in individual and family therapy. My mission is to help people overcome these problems and enjoy life fully.

Whether you’re a person wanting my help, an old friend, or you are just browsing, I’m glad you landed here. It’s my pleasure and privilege to meet people under all sorts of circumstances and at a thousand different intersections. Welcome to my internet home.

I offer private office appointments with flexible hours. On the FAQ page I have a list of frequently asked questions.

Look over the menu and browse to discover my background, my philosophy of treatment, and my qualifications. I have a blog where I share thoughts, ideas, helpful information, what’s on my mind. From time to time I add additional pages, so look around. To find me on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn, look for the icons at the bottom of each page on the site.

Don't forget to refresh your browser so that new posts on the blog, new videos, and new links will show up. Sometimes your web browser will display an older version of a web page rather than the latest available version. That's because your browser, in the interest of speed, may load the page from the browser "cache" on your hard disk rather than from the web (a page is likely to be stored in your cache if you visited it recently).

New on the site: On the media page, check out the videos including Martin Seligman on positive psychology, Jon Kabat-Zinn on mindfulness, two enlightening talks on pseudoscience (including Bill Nye, the Science Guy), and the wise and wonderful Richard Rohr on "Breathing Under Water."

Gratitude
: This homemade website—yes, I built it myself—would never have been delivered if not for a lot of technical help. My thanks go out to two remarkable web experts: Jeremy Kleindl, master web developer and source of inspiration and encouragement; and Ryan Smith, my virtual professor at Rapidweaver Classroom, whose tutorials are amazing. I must also express my gratitude, which goes quite beyond what I can express in words, to my wife Dana. Her love, patience, devotion, inspiration and support made possible everything herein described. Needless to say, any errors, bugs, broken links, and other defects here are my fault, not theirs!
